Was suppose to go up to mtns on Monday for a day hunt, 101 fever canceled those plans and had prior plans for yesterday so that was out. So I left this morning at 1:50 and arrived in Cameron Co at 5:00. Seen numerous ALIVE deer standing along 322 on the way up so I thought the day had promise. After getting ready I started up the mtn, it was not a quiet walk with crusted snow and frozen leaves! On the way up the Mtn I walked up on 3 doe, way to dark to shoot, and a bobcat. I got to my spot and settled in. At about 10 of 7 I heard running on opposite side of ravine, which is about 200 yards wide, then watched a doe explode off of private property and on to the public I was hunting bout 150 yards away. She kept stopping and looking back, imidiated thought, bear or coyote. I got ready in case it was a yote. After the doe fawn almost ran me over I heard the critter coming my way, it was a yote. He caught my wind at bout 170 yards so I took a shot at him, I missed! I actually sat back an chuckled as I watched him run as fast as he could towards Potter Co. So I sat back and relaxed and thought I'd enjoy the morning. I had a doe bust me twice during fall turkey and once during bear, she's who I was there for. At 7:19 she showed up as she normally did. She was searching for me to move but I didn't have to, I was already ready for her. She turned broadside at a hundred yards and I let the 338 Federal eat for the 2nd time this year! After she dropped I smiled, took my hat off to give thanks for the wonderful morning and the quick clean kill and enjoyed the peacefulness. I then went to make absolute sure I missed the yote, which I did, then retrieved my trophy! I know I missed the yote but I think the lack of light, some brush and my excitement all had parts in the miss and I really like the caliber! Sorry for the long story but had to share my AWESOME morning! She was the last tag I had and I was honored to finish my deer season the way it did.
